Blackmar Diemer Trap Normand

Nicolas Normand played the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit Vienna Variation. His game illustrates a point of theory that I have tended to overlook. This game gives me a good opportunity to examine it. Normand wrote to me. I quote a portion of his comments:

“Mr Sawyer, I am a 40-year-old French chess player. I have been playing chess since I am 15 but in chess tournament for only 3 years. I am a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit player as white especially Ryder gambit. I was wondering if you could give some piece of advice to find the best resources of information to fasten my studying. Of course, I tend to be a fan of Emil J. Diemer, Bill Wall's and Tom Purser's works and games. Maybe we could share some games. I thank you in advance. Nicolas
“PS: I have already most of your books that I enjoy a lot! I am very flattered that one of my games can be usable or even interesting. I have been following your different BDG chess works for a few years and you are a true reference for me (as German language is a bit harder for me, so sorry Emil !).”

Nicolas Normand as "DEATHSTAR81"wins a piece when Black falls into his trap.

Black should play 6...Nd5 7.Nxe4=] 7.fxe4 [I used to play 7.f4 e5!=; Komodo also likes 7.Be3=] 7...f6? [Black blunders a piece. Correct is 7...e5 8.Nf3 exd4 9.Qxd4 Qxd4 10.Nxd4 Bc5 11.Nf5 Nc6 12.Bd2 0-0-0 13.0-0-0=]
8.Be2! [The immediate 8.Be2 seems stronger than the alternative 8.Bb5+ c6 (or 8...Nc6 9.d5+-) 9.Be2+-] 8...e6 [At this point Black spent over a minute thinking. There is no effective way to wiggle out of trouble. 8...e5 9.Bxh5 Qxd4 10.Bxg6+ hxg6 11.Qxd4 exd4 12.Nd5 Na6 13.gxf6 c6 14.fxg7 Bxg7 15.Nf4+-] 9.Bxh5 fxg5 10.Bxg6+ hxg6 11.Qg4 Qe7 12.Bxg5 Qd7 13.0-0-0 Be7 14.Bxe7 Qxe7 15.Qxg6+ Kd7 [Going into an endgame still leaves Black down a piece after 15...Qf7 16.Qxf7+ Kxf7 17.Nf3+-] 16.Nf3 Nc6 17.d5!
